Democrat Gavin Newsom is warning California voters that voting for Republican Larry Elder, who is black, would be a vote against diversity.
You could not make this up.
Only a Democrat could make such a ridiculous claim with a straight face.
Breitbart News reports:
Gavin Newsom: A Vote for Larry Elder is a Vote Against ‘Diversity’ and ‘Racial Justice’
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) rallied supporters in Long Beach on the final night of campaigning in the California recall election, telling them that a vote for his main opponent, Larry Elder, is a vote against “diversity” and “racial justice.”
Elder, who is African American and was born and raised in Compton, would be the state’s first black governor.
However, Newsom, devoting most of his speech to attacks on Elder — as he has throughout the last month of his campaign — said that Elder’s views on race and gender were out of touch with the left-wing views that California Democrats hold.
The governor has said nothing to criticize racial attacks against Elder in recent weeks — including a violent assault in Venice, where a white woman wearing a gorilla mask pelted Elder and his security detail with eggs. Newsom also remained silent when a Black Lives Matter leader said that Elder was the “black face of white supremacy.”
And Gavin Newsom has the full support of the media and liberal elites.
Useless slogan by pandering elitist.
How many of the people in crowd are staffers or journalists? Where are the signs, the excitement, the real people?
